Hair Loss

We are at the point in the post pregnancy adventures when the hormones are leaving my body and I’m losing my hair. :(  (I think Ana’s starting to loose her hair, too)

When taking a shower I almost clog the drain with all the hair that falls out.  My “hair guy” was amazed by the amount that was falling out and worried that I’m under too much stress.  But, really I had my hair cut last Saturday after 10 days off of work, so stress is not the problem.

Now, lack of sleep can cause stress to the body and I am definitely lacking sleep.  Ana’s waking up every 3-4 hours still.  I have discussions with her most nights about how most 3-4 month olds are sleeping 6 hours.  I don’t think I’m getting my point across.  We started her on rice cereal this week.  I’ve been feeding it to her at night.  That still hasn’t been helping the sleeping issue. 

I know she’ll sleep in time, but 5 hours of sleep is kicking my butt. And, I really try to get Robert involved, but I’m such a light sleeper that I wake up immediately when she makes any sound and Robert can sleep through her screaming in his ear LOL.  Usually the 2nd or 3rd time she wakes up she goes to daddy, but I still lay there listening and not able to go back to sleep.

So with my hair loss and lack of sleep I’m a beautiful mess, hehe.
